Reasons for Designation

The most complete and extensive survival of downland archaeological remains in central southern England occurs on Salisbury Plain, particularly in those areas lying within the Salisbury Plain Training Area. These remains represent one of the few extant archaeological "landscapes" in Britain and are considered to be of special significance because they differ in character from those in other areas with comparable levels of preservation. Individual sites on Salisbury Plain are seen as being additionally important because the evidence of their direct association with each other survives so well.

There are 34 recorded examples of disc barrows, funerary monuments dating to the early Bronze Age, recorded in the Salisbury Plain Training Area. As a monument type disc barrows are sufficiently rare nationally that, unless severely damaged, all examples would normally be considered to be of national importance.
